, john heilemann, wrote this fascinating piece about the relationship describing it as a political marriage of convenience of sorts. he wrote that, quote, if obama wins, it may be because the former president saved his presidency, but what exactly do the clintons get in return? has there been or was there at some point a sort of a wink, wink, nod, nod, a handshake of sorts between the two? >> i can't imagine that that's possible at all. i think what you saw with president clinton was a commitment to stand up for what he believed in in this country, and he believed that barack obama would make the best president for our country at the time. folks who want to engage in conspiracy theories and anything other than one former president certainly understands better than anyone else what a current president has done and what it took to achieve that, that's all it was. >> kiki, there have been some questions about secretary clinton's health. is she healthy enough for a presidential run? >> i think she's healthy enough for anything she wants to do. i wish i was as healthy as she is. you kn
senator is leading by a 22-point margin for senator john kerry's soon to be vacant seat. perhaps this is his return to washington that he hinted about. >>> spelling might not be in the senator's wheelhouse. three straight tweets posted around midnight showed spell check would be a good idea. misspelled words including you're. and he butchered whatever. >>> a member of the super bowl bound ravens plans to use the nfl's media day on monday to talk about the importance of legalizing same sex marriage. and if the ravens become super bowl champs he says he will go on the ellen show to talk more about marriage equality and says he will do a little dancing, as well. and lebron and the crew are heading to the white house. president obama will be welcoming the heat to the white house tomorrow to celebrate that team's 2012 championship. >>> we flashback to 1998 when the then first lady uttered a phrase that stuck to her like glue ever since. more ahead, plus. >>> the last time senate democrats passed a budget the ipad didn't even exist. >> so how long ago was that? they are everywhere now.
for that, so i completely agree with john. when it comes to telling the republican party what they ought to believe in, that's not something that members of the rnc can do, that's something that the candidates have to do to say, here's the values we want to articulate and the policies we stand for and it doesn't just consist of we're against what president obama says. >> shortening the primary calendar, how would that help? how would that work? >> they just came off a primary calendar which had a primary and it took romney a long time to become the actual nominee, to get some of the other guys off the stage. i think what they'd like to be able to do is consolidate around the candidate very quickly in the future so that they can focus their resources on that general election. of course, it always looks that way when you have the incumbent president on the other, and they may change the calendar some. we've been watching them right now in states across the country and look for opportunities to change the way electoral map is done and the way electoral votes are portioned and there are a lo
it done in 2013. >> house speaker john boehner said the deal is practically done. is that what you hear? >> i know there's been serious negotiation on our side in the house and in the senate. and usually it's tough to get to that point, so the fact that we have gotten there is a good sign. >> the path to citizenship seems to be the sticking point for a lot of lawmakers stil lawmaker. if there's a path to citizenship does there have to be a penalty for the 11 million or so folks that are here illegally? >> for some, i think that is fair. but for the dreamers, who are here as kids. they are blameless, i do not think a fine is appropriate. but for some who clearly broke the law, i think it is. i think that we will see some kind of agreement that is maybe not the perfect agreement for either party but works for the country. >> timeline, are we looking late spring? late summer? >> i think so. you know, as you all know, it's been slow going in the congress right now. i think things will pick up in the later spring and get heavy in the summer. >> senator marco rubio getting ready to join the
-abortion advocates will gather in d.c. for the march on life. house speaker john boehner, former presidential candidate rick santorum are among those who will be speaking there. and that's their right to march. but over the last few years, we've seen women's health rights come under a vicious attack from virginia republican governor bob mcdonald pushing an invasive ultrasound bill to mississippi trying to push personhood bills and todd akin saying women's bodies had a way of shutting down pregnancies during a legitimate rain. now a lawmaker has introduced a bill that would force rape victims to carry their babies to term and their babies would be used as evidence during a court trial. under the bill sponsored by the state representative, kathryn brown, a rape victim who had an abortion would be thrown in jail for tampering with evidence. joining me is pat davis, the executive director of progress now in new mexico. it's great to have you here, pat. you are on the front lines of what's going on there. obviously, trying to steer people in the right direction of information when it comes to a po
on the democratic side. >> that's also one of the areas where john six pack sitting at home saying i have to show my driver's license to buy sudafed. it kind of makes sense to be subjected to a background check to buy a gun, as well. do you think, christina, that the video game industry and the entertainment industry, are they going to get a pass at the end of this process? >> i mean, that's a tough question what you define as a pass, but what you are looking at is people preparing to sort of take the heat, particularly in president obama's state of the union and he's not afraid to mention video games sxhooez not afraid to say this is an effort and the nra has said that, as well. so it's definitely going to get a look, but this is not a new issue and what manu says is exactly right. you are going to expect a political fight on both sides on this. >> gabe rielle giffords will spend more money in 2013, and this will will be a battle. >> she mentioned the google fireside chat. i want to play a snippet of what vice president biden said and talk about it on the other side. take a listen. >> i'm much less
senator john mccain, also a member of the immigration 8, talked about what this bipartisan plan means and also what it means for the gop. take a listen. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. >> alice, for a variety of reasons it was not. mainly because of the anti-immigration rhetoric that was doled out by the standard bear. mitt romney all through 2012. can this reverse that course? >> oh, it sure can. we learned a lesson. i think this is a great first step. the framework for this plan being that it's a good consensus of republicans and democrats. it's a great start. i think victoria hit on it. senator rubio also hit on it. fairness is critical in this. the framers of this immigration plan say this is tough, but it's fair. that's important. those that have been going about obtaining citizenship through the legal means should be front of the line and those who have not should go to the back of the line. i think there's also an i
